The summary you provide below is very impressive, thanks for compiling
it. It would be a nice addition to worg, with a date attached to it of
course!  It's bound to go stale at some point :-p.

However I would like to point out, the documentation for many of these
extensions is rather spreadout and thin.  So I agree with Rasmus, as in,
contrib is much more accessible, but I think it also encourages authors
to contribute documentation on worg (after all it's in the official
repository).  That said, I'm not sure why some of the extensions, like
ox-reveal, are _not_ in contrib.  AFAIU, it's quite mature.

Open source is the future. It sets us free.
